Today was the day. I had put it off for years and looked forward to it for years. All for nothing, well maybe not “nothing”. I will fill you in in a minute.
I have been working the last two nights and I am anxious to get back into my craft room. I am almost finished up with a great bunch of items. No pictures yet of the stuffed ones. I have finished up some stitcheries and stained those when I got home from work this morning.

I am stitching a little slower than normal. My eyes have been very blurry lately, I think they are tired.
I had about 50-60 skin pricks, test came back with possibly allergic to mold and bermuda grass, so the doctor ordered up the next tests because he did not believe the first one. The next test would include more of like a shot just under the skin, 17 of those. I was there for two hours, my little care taker Alice came with me and snapped some pictures of my arms, which are quite sore right now.
Bottom line is this, I am NOT allergic to ANYTHING!!!!!! That’s right, all of you who know me and who have witnessed my so called “allergy” attacks, well I must be a good faker. I am upset, I was hoping to go and find out what I was allergic to and get a series of shots that would do wonders, but that is not happening. I am most likely allergic to guinea pigs, the doctor said he did not have a test for that, but since they do cause be to break out in hives, the doctor assumed that one would be positive.
I was a little upset at first but after talking with him he assured me we could still fix it, well mostly. My diagnosis is Non-allergic Rhinitis Nonallergic rhinitis involves chronic sneezing or having a congested, drippy nose with no apparent cause. The symptoms of nonallergic rhinitis are similar to those of hay fever (allergic rhinitis), but there's no allergic reaction involved. Although nonallergic rhinitis is more annoying than harmful, it can make you miserable. Triggers of nonallergic rhinitis symptoms vary from person to person and can include certain odors or irritants in the air, changes in the weather, some medications, certain foods, and chronic health conditions. A diagnosis of nonallergic rhinitis is made after an allergy is ruled out.(definition from Mayo Clinic)
I can stop popping the benadryl and all the rest of the allergy medicines that don’t really help much. I have a new nasal spray, sinus rinse once a day and maybe a higher dose anti-histimine if the first two don’t work in the next two weeks.
Anyway, I hope you guys are having a great week and are finding a little stitching time!!
